Fluorescence Spectroscopy

Posted on: January 11th, 2021

Fluorimeters are widely utilized for the quantitation of biological compounds in solution, with applications ranging from environmental/agricultural water monitoring to DNA sequencing. These devices measure fluorescence by exciting a sample with an integrated light source and collecting the emitted light using either filtered detectors or embedded spectrometers. Historically laboratory fluorimeters utilized spectrometers due to their…

Fluorescence Measurements with the AvaFluorimeter

Posted on: April 30th, 2020

A benchtop fluorimeter system provides for the ability to scan across wavelengths of excitation in order to find optimal excitation and emission combinations for fluorescent samples.  A common limitation of fiber optic spectroscopy systems is that they typically only allow for isolating excitation wavelengths one at a time using bandpass or other optical filters.  Fluorescence…
